fundraising and campaigning in states in sandy's path. governor romney was still looking for votes today in ohio, iowa and wisconsin, but tis campaign says he will stay away from the key swing states of virginia and new hampshire to let emergency workers there focus on the storm. both candidates say this is a time for the nation to come together. >> i am noworried m this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> i would like to ask you who are here today to think about mang a contribution to the red cross or another relief agency, to be of help if you possiblyng can in any way you can imagine to help those in harm's way. rter: not only has sandyno charted an expensive and deadly path, the storm has timed its attack to disrupt the closest presidential election in many decades. the historic stm has shifted the nation's focus away from politics and cost both candidates opport
to break back again. >> how is the president going change the numbers. a lot of polls have romney up a point. >> it does not matter. those are weighted on who is likely to vote. there's some questions on that. the polls that matter is ohio, florida and virginia and, you know, even wisconsin and iowa as well. those are the ones that if obama can hold the midwest and that's what he is trying to hold. if he can hold that there's no way romney can win. >> it looks like romney will take ohio, florida and virginia. >> that's a dream. >> if he does that and he takes colorado too and iowa, all of those things are likely, i think that romney is going to win the election. romney only needs 269 to win. in one of those and it could happen, if you get a 269 it goes to the house and they line up state by state and they win because of all the states. one small point romney only needs 269 to get over the finish line. i think that he is going to get there. >> i think that's your wish there. >> thank you guys are coming in. >>> coming up the devastation hits one of the colleagues hard. the affects tha
, they just happen to tell spanish speaking people to vote on the wrong date. what a coincidence. wisconsin, they are doing training, eight recently, 17 since september where romney advocates trained people to go to the polls and then give people misleading information. what do they do? here's the different litany of things. felons can't vote. that's not true. in wisconsin once you've served your time, felons can vote. they needed proof of residency. once again not true. they say if you're handicapped, you're going to need to file certain papers if you don't want to come up to the polls. it's all made up. it's not true. you don't have to do that at all. observer assistance. you can get observer assistance but they tell you you cannot. why do they do all that? to gum up the works so it's slow to vote in the areas that are mainly democratic. they say you can't vote, oh, no, you need voter i.d., handicapped people canned vote, et cetera, et cetera. they make it harder to vote in democratic areas. they've got a million dirty tricks. which side believes in democracy and which side is actively wo
that romney can do to make up the points that he trails in ohio and wisconsin and those states but if for some reason obama's response to this is bungled or botched or he's seen as politicizing it for some reason then i think there's an opportunity for romney to score. >> and one of the tremendous ironies about this political season is because the republican party acted in a way that really caused, particularly african-american voters to feel there was a lot of racial -- a lot of nasty, ugly hostility not just toward barack obama but the voters. the obama campaign wound up front-loading so much of their early vote, when i was in ohio people were amped up to get out and vote earlier than they normally would have. in florida, soles to the polls which was cut off, has already happened so the obama campaign, in large part because of the republicans have actually banked more early votes this time than they had at this point in '08 so they've built up like a fire wall while the republicans are left with this to hamper their early vote. >> thanks for joining me tonight. >> we'll be right back with mo
